by Roland Steadham, Chief MeteorologistThe weekend is just around the corner and so is the next weather maker. Another front will move into the Treasure Valley Friday. It too will bring occasional valley rain, breezy conditions, mountains snow and isolated thunderstorms. This storm will slowly move out of the area on Saturday. As a result, the “potential” for occasional showers will stay in the forecast through the first half of the weekend.By Sunday, drier air will move in from the west.
by Roland Steadham, Chief MeteorologistThe weather has been spectacular since late Friday. But now, a storm brewing off the coast is set to move into the west and it will bring a significant change. Once it moves in, it will stick around for a good 5-7 days before moving out. Here’s how it plays out.Tuesday: We’ll see sunshine in the morning along with increasing south winds. The wind will be strongest in the east end of the Treasure Valley through the Magic Valley. It could gust above 30-35 mph.
by Roland Steadham, Chief MeteorologistThere is no doubt the storm track this year has favored the Midwest and northeast this winter season. (KBOI)Here we go again, another Nor’easter is expected for much of New England and the process begins later this weekend.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
